18F recently began its partnership with the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) on the GovConnect initiative, which helps agencies create a culture of excellence based on collaboration and teamwork.
To develop federal talent that can work and learn across boundaries, we need new practices and technologies. GovConnect helps agencies test and scale these approaches so we can build a 21st-century system that will better respond to demands and handle cross-agency program and policy challenges. It will do all this without the unnecessary limitation of organizational silos by implementing a new model of a mobile, agile, innovative, and skilled federal workforce. The OPM team, which includes staff trained by the OPM Innovation Lab and Stanford’s d.school, will develop this model in collaboration with other agencies.
